Dignity for Pages

“Posts, Posts, Posts!” Pages wails and runs off stage left. —Lost episode of The Brady Bunch

Just like a freckled little sister, too long have pages been suppressed and ignored. Pages have kicked and whined and fought unflaggingly for their rights and finally they won. Glory be.

Now, the Top Posts lists in your Blog Stats and your sidebar widget will include your pages. :-)

Sorry, Jan, we still can’t find a shred of dignity for you.

    Yes, very good move. Pages are definitely underrated and deserve more recognition.

    Yes, my poor pages have felt neglected far too long ;) And I think this explains why my Blog Stats graph has just gone up!

    Next, I would suggest having a Top Pages Count, or (even better imho) folding then into Top Posts and Pages.

    And also, of course, we need a Top Pages widget, separate and/or integrated with the Top Posts widget. This is all your fault, or course … come up with one good idea and three more get suggested! Thanks again …

    Could we also have some more advanced statistics on pages/posts. Like which surfers went to what page/post. A sort of unique tracking of visitors. That would be loveley!

    I can see why people might want them included in the stats, but putting static pages in the ‘Top Posts’ widget is a bit weird. They are not Posts. They are Pages. Do people really not understand the distinction?

    I was thinking the same thing. When I made the request, I was really only asking for the stats. I was a bit surprised to see one of the pages show up in ‘top posts’. It’s not a real big deal, I guess, but the way I use links to my pages pretty much guarantees that they’ll be in there quite a bit now.

    Ditto to other positive comments! And thank you for your work involved in making it so. This feature is extremely useful in my case. I’ve wondered all along if my pages weren’t of more interest, especially to new visitors, than the posts; now we’ll find out! Regarding another comment about having some sort of distinction between pages and posts, no one else sees the stats for my blog, so until you figure out a way to make a distinction, I know which is which, and I’m really the only one who cares.

    Cool, though I guess it’s ungrateful of me that the cumulative stats for pages start today. I’ve had one page which has been a gateway to my site for a lot of my readers for the last 4 months and it would be very useful to know how many hits it had had.

    Thanks. It’s very useful t be able to track pages.

    I use pages as gateways to collections of posts, to introduce visitors to blog structure (how to comment, how to navigate, etc.) and for “timeless” info (if you see a dead bird, call….) so being able to see whether pages are used and how (and to get them visible to search engines) is good.

    Thank you.
